Maybe you saw an inspirational movie, an awesome TED talk, or read an inspiring book. Maybe you had a great meeting with your boss. Maybe you have a brilliant idea that will change the world.
Inspiration can come from just about anywhere.
Inspiration is great, but is it enough? Does inspiration alone drive us to take action, to move toward our new future? Maybe, but probably not.
Inspiring thoughts quickly fade. Without action, inspiration is just another passing thought…soon forgotten.
Remaining in the status quo usually seems safer than taking action.
It’s almost a cliché: The journey of a thousand miles begins with the first step. Inspiration is nothing until it’s coupled with your willingness to take action. To take the first step, and then the next.
Action is the fulfillment of inspiration, and often inspires others in the process.
What action are you taking today to pursue the things that inspire you?
